- Excellent Machine
Excellent Machine This is a well-built machine that starts easily and cuts the grass very well. My only gripe concerns the grass collector. Others on this website have also picked up on this. I couldn't manage to get the soft plastic seam to slot into the lid, so I taped it on with strong tape. Halfway through the first mow, the box came apart and grass spilt everywhere.
I decided to Araldite the seam into the lid. In doing so, the Araldite acted as a sticky oil and allowed me to slide the soft plastic seam further into the slot in the lid, which is obviously how it is meant to be fitted but is impossible without some kind of lubricant. Araldite, will, of course, ensure it stays in place. So I would recommend this technique to others.
- Quality Product from a Known Manufacturer.
Quality Product from a Known Manufacturer. Product arrived when promised! Well boxed and protected. Easy to assemble. Instructions clear and easy to follow. Remember you need petrol and engine oil before use. Surprised that you don’t get a small tin of oil in the packaging.
- A Well Designed Mower
A Well Designed Mower The instructions for assembly are poor. More information required. The mower is very good & well finished. Easy to operate
- GOOD MOWER
GOOD MOWER Mower arrived well packaged and was easy to assemble. It cuts grass very well and is easy to manoeuvre. I've used it 6 times now, the grass box is bigger than my old electric mower, so just the one empty, rather than 4.
No hassle having to be tied to an electric cable, wish I had purchased this years ago.
- First Class
First Class A very good machine which was assembled in about thirty minutes, though very little assembly was required. This is a particularly fine product at a low purchase price, including oil in the delivery box to get you started.
Fuel up, and off you go. It fired on the first pull and on the second pull it started.
Excellent Great product at a genuine bargain price.
I did spot one review from a poor soul who found that he had two screws left over after assembly of his HP180. It was made clear that two grass-collection bags were in production, one of which did not require screws. Q.E.D.
- Reasonably Happy
Reasonably Happy Downside was plastic wheels and the grass box would be difficult to assemble for most people over 70 yrs. Mine was. The two halves of the box could have been pre assembled and the metal frame added later. I too had two screws left over.
Not a bad built machine, and started first pull
- Great Lawnmower
Great Lawnmower This is an excellent lawnmower for the price. Only need to assemble the handle bars and the grass collection container. Recommend.
MowDirect are a great company to purchase from.
- First Petrol Mower
First Petrol Mower Talked all summer about changing the electric mower and the hassle of the cord and extension cable, finally plumped for this mower. I'm not a practical person at all, but found this assembly to be pretty straightforward especially after finding an assembly video on you tube.
Mower started first pull, and cut an overgrown lawn easily. Really impressed. I have only used it twice but would highly recommend it. Easy to use and to change settings.
- Very Happy!
Very Happy! I've used MowDirect in the past for Mountfield products and they certainly didn't let me down this time. My new mower arrived within 22 hours of ordering!
The instruction manual could be a little clearer on the initial assembly (But that's a manufacturer issue - not MowDirect's). However, once assembled, oiled and fuelled, it started second pull and cut the lawn beautifully. Over all more than delighted.
Thank you MowDirect for first class service again.
